A Research Agenda for Mobile Systems Evaluation

Tamara Högler


The present work shows the necessity of an economic evaluation model that is based on singularities of mobile systems and that takes into account the interdependencies of their individual components. A motivation for this approach is not only given by the continuing discussion on the economic efficiency of mobile systems, but also by the fact that appropriate methodologies for comprehensive evaluation still do not exist. Starting point for a research agenda is the definition of the term mobile system, followed by the explanation of the single components and singularities of such systems. The findings of the present work motivate the development of a generic model for economic evaluation. By defining the research agenda we provide guidance for constructing such a model.
